The Plastic Scale Modeling Hour-Photo Tips For Modelers-Ep#49

This week on The Plastic Scale Modeling Hour we chat with a couple of our contest WINNERS and talk about using the camera in scale modeling.

In this age of Internet forums, email, blogs and Facebook an increasingly amount of digital photography has crept its way into the hobby. With it comes a few challenges and necessary skill sets to make those images clear and crisp. On this episode we’ll ask an expert for some advice and tips on how we can take better images of our scale models for sharing on the internet or publication.

Our guest hails from Arizona and its the man behind the camera at Crosswind Images, none other than my friend and fellow photographer and scale modeler Jay Beckman.
